Koch to add hydrocracking unit at Navajo refinery

By OGJ editors
HOUSTON, May 29 -- Koch Partners LP will design, supply, and install a gas oil mild hydrocracker at Navajo Refining Co. LP's 60,000 b/cd refinery in Artesia, NM.

The unit, which will use Process Dynamics Inc.'s IsoTherming process, will have an initial capacity of 15,000 b/sd and be expandable to 30,000 b/sd. It is expected to be operational in fourth quarter 2008.

The project will increase the refinery's capacity to process outside feedstocks and increase yields of higher-valued products. It also will be a key component in the company's overall strategy for producing low-sulfur transportation fuels.
